South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

**Accepting reservations for 2014 **

PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR- IT IS UP TO DATE

Welcome to A SHORE THING! Our house was built in 2007 with approximately 2800 sq ft of space.

This is our second home, so we have made it as comfortable as possible. We have two kids of our own, so sand toys, books and beach chairs are available. We are about 1 1/2 blocks from the beach on quiet street. Our backyard is nicely wooded to provide privacy from the summertime chaos. We are on the north side of South Haven by the First Avenue beach.

We do rent on a Friday to Friday basis (vrs Saturday to Saturday), so renters get the entire weekend to enjoy at the beach.

This house is fantastic for 2 families as it has 2 master bedrooms. There is one queen master bed on the first floor with an attached bathroom (with soaker tub and stand-up shower) and another queen bedroom upstairs. Also upstairs is a room with 2 twin beds, a bunk room with 2 bunk beds and a loft with sofa sleeper. The loft is a great second family room with a TV and DVD player. Both master bedrooms also have TVs. There are a total of 4 TV's in the house (2 with DVD players).

**Bonuses** are the enormous family room with huge floor to ceiling windows and the kitchen table sits 8 people comfortably. There are an additional 2 saddle barstools to sit at the adjacent kitchen counter. Off the kitchen is a fabulous carpeted porch with a fireplace for those late night gatherings. There is a great mudroom for all those wet beach towels and sandy flip-flops. We also have an enclosed outdoor shower to rinse off from the beach or just to shower under the trees! The washer and dryer is also conveniently located on the first floor.

Bath towels and linens are provided as are all cooking/kitchen necessities. There are plenty of paper products to also get you started as well as your coffee & laundry essentials. Please do bring your own beach towels/blankets.

Peak Season is weekly rental only- Memorial Day to Labor Day. For weekly rentals, check-in is 4:00 PM EST Friday and check-out is by 10 am EST the following Friday.

Minimum age for renting adults is 25 yrs old. There is also a map link on the side for you to check and see where we are located in South Haven.

Please check the availability calendar before contacting us, we keep it up date.

***Unfortunately, we do not allow smoking or pets ANYWHERE on the property***

Thanks and happy vacationing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send you a quick e-mail expressing how much we enjoyed our week at your home. As it was 2 years ago, everything was wonderful even the weather! Our family has and will have many good memories of our vacations there. The kids always remember the outside shower and the Goose on the front porch. The Goose picture is one we have gotten each visit. The only thing that changes is the grandchildren get bigger!

A great week, a great house, a great rental

  • 5 of 5
Five adults and 2 young children (4 1/2 and almost 3) spent a week in mid-August at A Shore Thing and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is great, a block or so to the beach and the lake (however, the best beaches are a 5 minute car ride away). The house was spotless on our arrival and the owners responded immediately to our questions. The house is beautiful, new, was well stocked with all items needed for your stay, including all kitchen necessities, beach chairs and some toys for the kids. The decor inside was very cottage-like and friendly. The house is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and the kids rode their bikes outside without any traffic worries. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in South Haven, it really is a great property.

Great house for two families

  • 5 of 5
A Shore Thing was the perfect home away from home for two families--a total of nine people. The screened-in porch with the gas fireplace provided a great evening respite for the adults while the kids played and watched movies in the upstairs loft. And it was chilly, so the fireplace was not only welcomed, but needed. The house is about half a mile from a private beach (a nice walk), but if you like people watching, I'd recommend going to one of the many public beaches that are a little over a mile away. It's a quick drive or 15 minute walk. The outdoor shower came in handy for rinsing the sand off the kids. The only complaint I have--which isn't really a complaint, but a preference--is that there were no non-stick pans in the kitchen or cooking spray (which we ended up buying), so we spent a lot of time scrubbing pans after breakfast. If you prefer nonstick, just bring your own pan. Otherwise, the home was clean and comfortable.

Best Vacation House Yet

  • 5 of 5
Owners were very helpful when renting. House was very spacious- pictures online didn't do it justice. Floor to ceiling windows in family room. Outdoor shower was quite helpful after the beach. We spent every night in the screened porch- just lovely. Couldn't have asked for a better location or nicer owners. Answered every question we had quickly. Will def rent from again.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We love that our home is just a quick 1 1/2 block walk from the beach and yet on a quiet street that the kids can play. We treat this home truly as our own as we are here so much- we just love South Haven. Whether we are picking fruit in the summer/fall or just enjoying the beach- just a great town.

Owner's Response: We encourage all renters to at least peruse our huge 'Shore Thing' binder at the house that includes directions to the beach ( yes, just a mere 1 1/2 blocks away as you see on the map ), lists of free wifi hot spots in town (we do not have wifi, nor do we claim to on our site), how to operate fireplaces and switch BBQ propane tanks and lists many many restaurants, activities, upicks, wineries, etc. in the area. We include our home and both cell numbers in rental agreements should any problems occur and encourage calls. We want your stay to be a vacation :)

Very Satisfied

  • 5 of 5
Loved it! Our family celebrated Father's Day and our 41st wedding anniversary here. We had six adults and four children under four years of age. The house was spotless and very spacious. We had
Everything we would need for a weeks stay. Very peaceful but still close to the beach and town. The
Owners were very helpful and always easy to contact. We would definitely recommend this
House and will probably rent it again next year.

Wonderful new, clean, spacious home!!

  • 5 of 5
We had 3 adults and 5 children for a long weekend stay. The house was just wonderful! It had everything we needed. House was spotless, beds comfy, kitchen totally stocked, plenty of room for everyone. Loved the huge family room. Went into South Haven to do some shopping. Took long walks along Lake Michigan. Watched movies, worked on jigsaw puzzles, and played cards each evening. The pictures of this home do not do it justice. It was perfect!!!! I would like to rent for a week next year, 3 days was not enough.
